Teacher Effectiveness Initiative

Teacher Effectiveness Initiative

TEI is a district-wide commitment to dramatically improve student growth and achievement by ensuring that a well-prepared, highly effective professional stands in front of every classroom in Memphis. The underlying premise is straightforward: of all school-level factors, it is the effectiveness of a child’s teacher(s) that most greatly impacts how much he or she learns. Simply put: students learn more when they are better taught.

To realize our goals, we are implementing the following strategies:

  • Use a common, agreed-upon process to define and measure effective teaching.
  • Make smart decisions about who teaches our students.
  • Better support, utilize and compensate our teachers.
  • Improve the surrounding contexts for teachers and students to foster effective teaching.
